At The Princess Margaret Hospital we offer a Consultant-led private Rapid Access Breast Clinic to patients based in Windsor, Maidenhead and Ascot.
We aim to provide rapid investigation, and guide patients from diagnosis through to treatment, including a complete package of care tailored to each patient's individual needs.
Where possible, all necessary tests will be carried out in one hospital visit to enable your Consultant to reach a diagnosis and to discuss with you any private treatment that may be required.
Do I need a GP referral?
A referral from a GP or a NHS breast centre is necessary if you have private medical insurance, to ensure that all costs are covered.
If you are using our self-pay option, the referral is not required but it is always recommended that you see your GP before beginning any treatment.
- Clinics run Monday to Friday
- Urgent consultations are available upon the discovery of a new breast symptom such as a lump
